Mala Meditation

Meditate with a Mala

Mala beads are a great tool to help focus your attention, whether you’re just starting a meditation practice or you're an advanced practitioner. Meditation isn’t about eliminating the thoughts. Rather, it's about creating space between them, allowing yourself the room to connect to your higher self. The beads provide a tactile physical reminder of something to return to if you find your mind wandering, just like returning to your breath. If you are new to meditation one thing is guaranteed —  your mind will wander. When it does, simply return to the beads. You’ll be challenged consistently in your practice. It doesn’t mean meditating is not for you— it just means you're human in a modern world.  Watch the video below for some guidance on your new mala.
